Sarah House Santa Barbara is pleased to announce that it has been selected for funding by the Archstone Foundation Board of Directors. A grant for $22,000 will fund the work of the House specifically as it impacts elderly veterans and residents who were formerly homeless. Sarah House is grateful to the Archstone Foundation and looks forward to additional opportunities for service which this grant will make possible.

About Archstone Foundation

Meeting the Needs of an Aging Population

For the first time in our country’s history, individuals are living well into their 80’s, 90’s, and beyond. This growing group of older adults offers astonishing opportunities, and an array of unexpected yet exciting challenges.

Archstone Foundation

Since inception, Archstone Foundation has responded to the implications of these changing demographics and has supported innovative responses to the emerging and unmet needs of older adults. The Foundation has funded a wide range of grantees making important contributions in critical, yet often overlooked areas of need. Archstone Foundation previously provided significant support to sustained initiatives that have helped confront elder abuse and neglect, prevent falls, and provide compassionate and more spiritual approaches to end-of-life care.

Following an in-depth review of its philanthropy, and the needs of California’s diverse aging population, the Foundation today focuses its grantmaking on four major areas:

  • Enabling older adults to remain in their homes and communities;
  • Improving the treatment of late-life depression;
  • Developing innovative responses to the family caregiving needs of older adults; and
  • Expanding the health care and broader workforce needed to care for, and serve, the rapidly growing and aging population.

With a special focus on California, and concern for older Americans, Archstone Foundation welcomes the opportunity to collaborate with public and private funders, as well as nonprofit and civic leaders, to improve the well-being of older adults.
